Hi,
This started I believe when upgrading to various 2.6 versions. I
compile. Once started, snort uses lots of CPU and uses memory till
there is about 16mb free.
Right now, I have 2.6.1.5 compiled and running. Its been running about
12 minutes.
Has not been killed as of yet.

last pid: 21628;  load averages:  0.37,  0.46,  0.57
                                                    17:38:34
44 processes:  43 sleeping, 1 on cpu
CPU states: 57.8% idle, 36.3% user,  5.9% kernel,  0.0% iowait,  0.0% swap
Memory: 1023M real, 17M free, 1075M swap in use, 776M swap free

   PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE  SIZE   RES STATE    TIME    CPU COMMAND
 21624 snort      1  12    0 1000M   43M sleep   12:25 38.19% snort
 21625 root       1  58    0 1644K  340K sleep    0:32  1.38% truss
 21628 root       1  58    0 1836K  924K cpu      0:03  0.92% top

Im using oinkmaster 1.2 for rule updates, and have just updated rules yesterday.
They are; snortrules-snapshot-CURRENT.tar.gz

At this point have not downgraded yet, or disabled any rules. I will
get a copy of the rules file to post.

thanks.
